Project Finance and Financial Modeling Services
U.S. project activities are at a crossroad: The aging of infrastructure assets has become a critical issue for the U.S. and capital needs to replace or restore these assets are incredibly high relative to GDP. At the same time, public debt has reached record levels and bond insurers have almost collapsed, limiting access to traditional bond financing solutions. In addition, banks’ appetite for long-term financing solutions is also in jeopardy, as the financial services industry is reinventing itself in the midst of regulatory and fiscal responses to the largest financial crisis in recent history.
This historic environment - an anticipated increase of private capital flowing to these projects, combined with the necessity of finding new financing arrangements, likely more complex – will create surging demand for specialized expertise and services in that arena. We are committed to supporting all active parties or projects (banks, investors, private sector developers) in these challenging times, building on its financial modeling, accounting, tax, and finance expertise as well as its experience with project finance infrastructure and Public Private Partnership (PPP) in Europe.
